Out with the old and in with a New Year! Have you suffered some loss during this last year?

Have you been mourning with such deep sorrow inside? Been suffering in bereavement and mourning? Perhaps you've been rejected ..or just feel that way cuz of how the circumstances now look. Have ya felt depressed or in despair? Please don't hurt yourself or any others. There is help available for you.
Please gain God's perspective ..via biblical believing prayer, praise, gratitude, and proper worship.. yes, a perspective from where Christ is seated up above it all. He sees your whole life start to end and understands how you feel. Listen, no loss or difficulty, no matter how painful, has to be the end of your experience here forwards ..on to victory. Keep going on with Him. God sees it ALL - and He allows some trials in the life of believers, knowing what's best for all people around em. He deeply cares and knows what he is doing. Yearn for Him, and burn with passion for Him who has so much compassion for you and your loved ones.
Trust Him. Who else are you going to trust with your future? What do you have to lose? Zip! 
He is looking down from above, loves you so much He just can't take His eyes off of you. And yes, He is able to see your life from conception.. from your pre-birth beginning to very end. He can see the dark valleys, the pain, and the mountains of your life. Perhaps His angles are kinda wondering how you will face the present challenge you are going through. Will you be stopped in your growth and just give up, defeated? Or will you move forward in righteousness a meaningful relationship with God on to and through the next challenge? You can do this through the Jesus Christ of the Bible. He is there for you. He will restore, comfort, touch and even tie up all the loose ends for you. Your life can improve and be used to comfort others as you persevere in faith.
The Lord has the keys of death and the keys of Hates. Death was defeated by His Cross. He now lives as the Keeper of the keys. No non-believer will ever get by Him undetected. People can ignore the Savior here now, but no one will be able to ignore Him there - the Judge. When you die, your eternal destiny is fixed. No changing or salvation for any of us post physical death. Jesus is the Resurrection and the life - He is the only way for us to get into heaven. Acknowledge your sinfulness and simply repent (ditch it, have a change of mind about it). 
Jesus is only Way in.. the Truth and the Life and He wants you safe forever. Bible teaches that in the last days there will be distress of nations with no way out. Perplexing. Stressful - I can't make your problems go away. See God for who He really is and see what he says. But don't lose hope now. When in trouble, sickness or pain take it to Jesus. God loves you with an everlasting love. He can minister and be glorified through you. I'm thinkin' about how Mary and Martha in the Bible must have felt when their brother Lazarus of Bethany got sick and died (cuz of Adam's sin). Looked bad but Jesus delayed. He waited days to go there.. but fixed that unfixable mess anyways. His delays aren't his denials. He has made everything beautiful in His time. He did better than they asked of Him. He went above and beyond their request of him.  
"For I know the plans that I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you.." ~ Jer. 29:11
It's time for a NEW START!  "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new." 2 Cor. 5:17
Going forward have zero trepidation or anxiety in your advancing, believer.  "The Lord Himself goes before you and will be with you; He will never leave you.." Deut. 31:8
